to an interview we conducted on december 18, 2008 with outgoing president george w. bush. his words on being a unita, not a divider. -- uniter, not a divider. listen to what he said, also his body language. [video clip] >> you said, i am optimistic washington. i believe things happen for a reason. >> that was a hopeful person saying that. >> are you less hopeful? >> we work together, there were -- the tone changed some initially. we had no child left behind. some bipartisan accomplishmentssome people here in this town agenda. should. and it did not happen. terms. guest: president obama has said things better very similar. -- that are very similar. it is not just about washington. broader culture. we live in a polarized culture. we live in a culture that celebrates -- notoriety is the quickest ticket to 15 minutes in the 24 hour news cycle. you get noticed the more outrageous things you say, whether it is talk radio or print or on the web. the other enormous difference that contributes to this -- i do not know how you reverse it. except over time. 50 years ago, you had two political parties t
'll push as hard as we can. martha: mark these send, former speechwriter to president george w. bush. alcan combs -- alan colmes, host of the "alan colmes radio show". good morning. big day in america. great to have you both with us. you heard david plouffe's remarks. you worked for president george w. bush. is there common ground that needs to be sought on this issue in this country, do you think? >> i think there can be. look, i have two daughters who are the exact same age as the kids who died in newtown. there are a lot of things the republicans can support like the president announced. better gun owner and safety education and mental health support and helping develop emergency responses and the rest but when the president goes to gun control i think the public support and bipartisan support drops dramatically. there is a fox news poll shows only 22% of americans believe more gun control would have actually stopped an incident in newtown where as 71% think the criminals will get guns anyway. the 71% are right. there sim peer call evidence that shows it. i think it is a mistake to go af
. is that the case? karl rove, former senior advisor to president george w. bush and a fox news contributor and good morning to you, karl. i see you stayed far away from washington, d.c. today, back there in austin, texas. what do you think that number, 55%, reflects based on what we've watched over the past two months? >> well, it reflects people paying attention to what's been going on. the president has been far more confrontational after the election. in fact, excuse me, "new york times" article yesterday interviewing a bunch of his friends where one of the takeaways from his friends and aides, he would be quote, more bloody-minded about republicans. recent stories in both the post and "l.a. times" and "new york times" where his aids felt aides felt he was liberated in his section term. liberated from what? take on political opposition and focus on defeating the republicans in the fourth fourth election. most presidents say they're liberated. i'm never on the ballot again. i can work with people to bring together big purposes. the president has much smaller objective. let me beat use my power to
on december 18, 2008 with outgoing president george w. bush. listen to what he said, also his body language. [video clip] >> you said, i am optimistic that we can change the tone in washington. >> that was a hopeful person saying that. >> are you less hopeful? >> we work together, there were some bipartisan accomplishments but the rhetoric got very tough. some people here in this town use the politics of personal destruction to advance their agenda. i do not want to sound self- serving, but i have not. i do not think a president should. i was hoping for better tone, and it did not happen. host: as you reflect on george w. bush at the end of his two terms. guest: president obama has said things better very similar. it is not just about washington. washington is a reflection of a broader culture. we live in a polarized culture. we live in a culture that celebrates -- notoriety is the quickest ticket to 15 minutes in the 24 hour news cycle. the other enormous difference that contributes to this -- i do not know how you reverse it. 50 years ago, you had two political parties that were both appe
to be part of the solution and work with congress to try to get things done. we watched george w. bush do it when he did it in a controversial election, first term and second term. first term he reached across the aisle and got tax cuts for everyone even though the united states senate switched majority control from republicans to democrats in may of his first year in office. then he worked across the aisle to get education reform done. it can happen, but it takes a president who is willing to be presidential and really lead rather than just demand. >> eric: do you think he can take a page from george w. bush. what did you advise the president at that time and what lessons from that experience that president obama can take as he enters into his second term? >> president bush had the advantage of being a governor where he had to work with other people on the other side of the aisle. he did that successfully in texas. when he got to washington, d.c. he was committed to govern the country, not just the one that demanded change. he wanted to work with the democrats and republicans to bring ch
will be smaller. george h.w. bush and george w. bush won't be here. there have been pres debts where presidents in the past haven't made it. george h.w. bush just got out hospital, which is why they won't be here. mitt romney won't be here. the last time a vanquished opponent didn't show up was in 1985 for ronald reagan, and walter mondale was a no-show. that was the last time that the 20th state fell on a sunday and they had to do the monday as i rememberrial, versus another day. and back in those days, it was the coldest one on record, 7 degrees. there will be differences between the obama 2009 and 2013. four years ago, the crowd estimate was nearly 2 million people. there is a big parlor game about whether the crowd estimates on the mall are ever accurate. but nearly 2 million. now they are saying between 600- to 800,000. and there are a series of other things. and the money. four years ago, the obama administration, the obama campaign raised $53 million for the inaugural with personal contributions, all capped at $50,000 or less and there was disdain expressed by the administration about ta

will have a roundtable discussion in about 20 minutes with two former speechwriters for george w. bush and bill clinton. all of our coverage and behind the scenes photographs are available on our website c- span.org. let's take you back to january 2009. [crowd chanting "obama"] >> thank you. thank you. my fellow citizens, i stand here today humbled by the task before us, grateful for the trust you have bestowed, mindful of the sacrifices borne by our ancestors. i thank president bush for his service to our nation, as well as the generosity and cooperation he has shown throughout this transition. 44 americans have now taken the presidential oath. the words have been spoken during rising tides of prosperity and the still waters of peace. yet, every so often, the oath is taken amidst gathering clouds and raging storms. at these moments, america has carried on not simply because of the skill or vision of those in high office, but because we the people have remained faithful to the ideals of our forbearers, and true to our founding documents. so it has been, so it must be with this generati
with the outcome. democrats complain that obama caved. because the president's plan allows george w. bush's tax cuts to become permanent. for those making less than $400,000 a year. these democrat critics fear that obama's second term instead of being quote, unquote bold will be quote, unquote cautious as his first term. and on the right, republicans moan and grown and say that -- groan and say that obama is demeaning in the way he deals with house speaker john boehner. hold on, says columnist rockman. we expect too much of obama he says because in the united states, we subscribe to the quote, unquote myth of the imperial presidency. other transformational democratic presidents such as fdr and lbj, rockman says, have substantial democratic majorities in both the senate and in the house to enact their landmark legislation. obama in contrast has had to work with a narrow democratic majority in the senate and with an opposition party, the republicans in control of the house for the two years since january 2011. well, what about ronald reagan? president of the united states two successful four-year

[ male announcer ] yes, you could business pro. yes, you could. go national. go like a pro. kozachik, k >>> a quick update, joy reid and karen finney apparently didn't change the minds of the nra in the first segment, the ad regarding president obama has not been taken down. the ad has been making the website crash and sometimes slow tonight. but the most ugly and stupidest ad the nra has ever done is still there. >>> and ed m
military and their families. it is a tradition that was started under president george w. bush. they have expand it this year to be larger than it has ever been. it's essentially doubled in size. there are two official inaugural balls, two only in washington tonight. one of them is the commander in chief ball. and the other of them is the other official inaugural ball. thanks for being with us on what is kind of a big day in washington. you know the basics of what happened today. church service at st. john's house near the white house. the president goes from the white house then to the capitol, then he is sworn in at the capitol on the west front. and that is the spot from which president obama today delivered his second inaugural address. well will have much more on all of that coming up this hour. but here is the moment from today. the moment that i want to show you was not part of the official program. it was not on anybody's schedule. we did not know it was coming, and it was not spoken into any microphone. so i'm just going to play this for you for a second. but notice it's going to
. this is something new. after president george w. bush won reelection in 2004, he did not have an entire campaign structure at the ready, millions of supporters strong mobilizing behind him and raising money for him to achieve his second term goals. president clinton didn't have anything like that when he was elected to a second term. no president has had an independent group do that. but barack obama now has that. his election campaign has been turned into an independent group. the chairman of the new group will be a man named jim messina. he is not exactly a political lightweight. his last job was in fact running president obama's 2012 reelection campaign. to have jim messina in charge of this thing means this is not a place where emeritus your friends to keep them on the payroll. this is something that is going to be an active operation with some of the biggest guns in politics at the helm of it. democrats are turning their brightest lights from the two successful campaigns of this president into a political operation that will operate throughout president obama's second term. nobody has any i
is 2005, the george w. bush second inauguration, $45 million was raised for his committee. security costs there were comparable. there rose fivefold after 9/11. by 2005 they were in the $100 million range. this inauguration, despite hardships, the numbers are staying fairly concept -- fairly constant. host: our first president was sworn in on april 30 in new york city. it has moved back and forth from the east front to other locations on capitol hill. from harry truman through jimmy carter, it was always on the east front of the capital. moved by the congressional committee to the west front in 1985, which is where it remains today. kansas, independent line, good morning. caller: i think it is amazing that we all want to complain about every penny that is spent in washington, d.c., because of the inauguration. this is something special that happens every four years. surely, surely, people, you can understand. if you have a wedding, you do not spend that every year. you wait and you spend a fortune. the inauguration is very special to people, we should sit back and relax. it is a big event
to elbow their way to the front. for george h.w. bush that's a great example. another great example, william f. buckley. he had liberal friends. in fact, he campaigned for liberals that were his friends even though he knew it upset some on the conservative side. for william f. buckley, it wasn't a blood sport. >> to end this block, to counter it just a bit, and i'm sorry but it has the added value of being true, the president does need to reach out.agree. but he has, and it hasn't worked. so when he does it again, the republicans actually need to show up. >> you just quoted henry kissinger. there is hope. >> that's like me going jogging for ten minutes and saying afterwards, you know what i didn't lose 30 pounds. no i'm dead serious. they have stuck their toe in the water. that is it. when you still have democrats, democratic senators that run the senate andrea mitchell complaining that they've never been to camp david, the president doesn't call them they don't go over to the white house, then it's time for him to be more aggressive about this. >> two points quic
of them will not be here today. george w. bush, and george h.w. bush. the 88-year-old just got home from the hospital because of bronchitis and infection. and his son, george w., said he wanted to be with his father. but his dad said, when you leave the stage, stay off the stage. that's liberating. >> president carter, in september, set the record for the longest retirement in presidential history. it had been held by hubert hoover. now, jimmy carter's been ex-president for 32 years. and what he has done with that, as well. you see the crowds crossing pennsylvania avenue. everyone gathering. the president will be coming to the capitol, starting around 10:40. >> we are told, people are given much clearer directions this year about where they go, when they can cross. that security has asked that apps are guiding everybody. people were stuck in a tunnel four years ago, and couldn't get to their destination. >> 2 million people came to the mall. under 1 million this time around. you see the crowd right there. the president and the first lady are inside the white house right now. earlier this
, but the 17th to have to go in all girls. the others include george w. bush, bill clinton, ronald reagan, richard nixon, to eisenhower, fdr, woodrow wilson, william mckinley, ulysses s. grant, abraham lincoln, anger jackson, james monroe, james madison, thomas jefferson, and george washington. down on the national mall where the crowds are gathering, we have a reporter in the middle of everything. >> right from a capital, in the middle of the national mall, three ladies with us and make the journey to this and operation. >> i am gloria, from seattle. >> michelle, new york. >> marion, pennsylvania. >> you decided to meet here. >> we are all three sisters. >> why did you decide to come to washington for the 57 and operation? >> i think we regretted not being here quarter years ago. we decided we would not miss it this time around. >> we never thought about it or we did not think it is possible to come altogether. >> how did this all happened? how did each of you get here? >> i drove up from pennsylvania. >> i flew in. >> gives me an average cost of how much this will come to, the bill to b
lived to be 93. jimmy carter and george h.w. bush are both 88. do they explain why? my first thought was they have great health care. >> that is one of the reasons. and let's face it, men who get to be president tend to be well educated, they tend to be relatively wealthy and they have access to top notch health care. so i think that is one good explanation for why they do have the tendency to live longer. >> we were just looking at some other presidents who aged rather quickly. george w. bush, we have i think that before and after. also his dad, george h.w. bush, if we can bring those up again. they both look, i mean, clearly, lots of gray. but they also did exercise a lot so i guess that's one thing that kept them looking fit, if not on their faces, the rest of them looked pretty fit and energetic. >> ironically enough, the president who didn't seem to age was the president who was the oldest when he came into office. that was ronald reagan. and while the white house always officially denied that president reagan dyed his hair, i think there was a lot of skepticism about that. >> b
of political capital. we remember the famous line george w. bush delivered saying i've earned political capital and i'm going to use it -- or spend it, rather. how much political capital did this president earn in his first term? i want you all to weigh in on that quickly. >> i think it was manifest in the fact that he got re-elected by a rather decent margin. even an opposition party who reads election returns that may mean something but after the fist year it means less and less. the result is if a president is more and more frustrated in congress, what second-term presidents have tended to do is, one, try do more by executive action, as president obama is already trying to do with gun control, and the other thing is they get more involved in foreign policy than perhaps before because that's something they could do without consulting congress every hour. >> the death of osama bin laden was huge. and that gave him an enormous amount of political capital. but there are so many things that he can't predict. i mean with ronald reagan, he had iran/contra, and that really pulled -- you talk about b
it. >> reporter: despite that pledge in 2004, george w. bush's second term was marred by a slew of bad headlines from escalating violence in iraq to his administration's response to hurricane katrina. >> doing a heck of a job. >> reporter: still second terms can offer a shot at redemption. take reagan paving the way for the end of the cold war. >> mr. gorbachev, tear down this wall! >> reporter: humor can also go a long way, like when bill clinton with a little help from his wife mocked his own lame-duck status. with this unforgettable video from his final months in office. >> i really think bill has everything under control. >> wait, wait, wait, wait! >> reporter: and of course depending upon what happens four years from now it may well be bill clinton making more lunches for his wife as she could potentially be among those vying for a chance to call the white house home. but as it comes to the second-term agenda for the president, the first thing at the top is complete your remarks for tomorrow's inaugural address, roughly 24 hours from now. we are told by valerie jarrett, one
their accomplishments in the first term. others have not. george w. bush did not talk much about his first term but decided to make a bold foreign policy statement. what are the considerations that go into choosing what you say. >> when you look at the history of inaugural addresses there are some determined by the trajectory of history. john f. kennedy gave a speech that codified the moral commitments of the cold war. ronald reagan's first inaugural speech was an economic speech. the context was inflation which was a threat to the country at that time. but most of others, bush was like that too, most of the other good ones, jefferson's first or whatever, they're really about the values that unite the country and then also try to put your moment in the broad long context of american history. why this is important and how we're led forward. without being a policy address, it says we have certain values that mean we have to confront certain problems. if i was working on this speech, which i'm not, i would address this problem of polarization, the deep divisions of our country, how we get passed t
about george w. bush, they're shredding the constitution tonight. >> that was a lie when they said it about george w. bush and it's a lie when they're saying it about anthony scalia. what scalia said was it protects america's right to constitutional arms. >> if you listen to the president, you would think that's the view of all of them. >> of course. >>> we'll move onto the debt ceiling with the government on pace to run out of money by mid-february. >> yesterday, the president warned republican leaders raising the nation's borrowing limit was non-negotiable and congress aimed to use it as lever eventuallyiage for deep s. >> while i'm willing to find middle ground to reduce our deficits, america cannot afford another debate. not paying its bills is irresponsible. it's absurd. republicans in congress have two choices here. they can act responsibly and pay america's bills or they can act irresponsibly and put america through another economic crisis. but they will not collect or ransom in exchange for not crashing the america economy. the financial well-being of the american people is
but no one will dispute the fact that george w. bush was aiming for the bleachers with his second inaugural with what he called his freedom speech which is -- in terms of projecting american force, moral and military around the world in the wake of 9/11 and the doctrine of preemptive military action. >> you knows the reference to lincoln, we talk about being in a divided america now. in many ways we are politically. but you think about lincoln and that inauguration, both of his, it was a different level. >> different level all together. he is involved in the conflict where half a million people would be killed, the end of channeled slavery. a lot is at stake. we're fighting now but not anywhere like that, thank god. >> we're about to see the introduction of the first lady of the united states, michelle obama. as you watched her grow in this role the last four years, what do you think? >> well she has done -- she is a, the most popular person in america just about. she has firmed up the sense of this family as a very responsible family that people can relate to, which was not always going to
come to this extremist point from what we have heard to president george w. bush resigning? there are a couple of things going on here. they are coming to an end. which is good news for the rest of us. there has been a 30 year drift since reagan to the right in the republican party. reagan when he made those statements didn't have to deal with rush limbaugh. he said something at that point and you also have a natural evolution of special interest groups and it is not just the nra. it is both sides of the abortion debate. it is some of the environmentalists. they take the most extreme position possible in order to raise money from their most devoted ne nat ticks. i know members who resigned in the past year because a lot of the stuff that was coming out from that organization before this election was really vile stuff about the president. and they have gone off the deep end. here is ronald reagan in a 1999 ceremony. >> i want to tell all of you here today something that i'm not sure you know. you do know that i'm a member of the nra. and my position on the right to bear arms

that republicans today could learn a lot from george w. bush's attitude toward immigration. neil: all right, but you don't think that this is a slippery slope. i mean, what you do in colorado, other states pick up, what you do for education today you have to do for a variety of other services as well. then pro you provide for kids, of illegals who cannot be blamed if they came here as infants or were born here, you will not extend to their families as well? >> you know, i would say, when go i to another country, i do not expect them to bend their laws to acome dat to -- accommo. >> i didn't realize you immigrated anywhere. >> when i go, and i regardless of whether i'm immigrating there are not, i do not expect them to bend their laws to accommodate me. >> they have been here for decades. neil: i think we're misses here is fact that those who use the lflegalsystem to become citizent takes a long time to go through that process, i had an exchange student, who lived with my process who is going through this process we're 8 years into this doing everything that the government requires, he is lo
that george h.w. bush got in 1988. george h.w. bush won a landslide over michael dukakis. we know what happened to mitt romney. the same thing's happening now. the political ground is moving under their feet, and right now, sadly, neither they, nor the nra, is doing what it takes to make sure they adapt to changing times. and if they don't do it pretty y quickly, there's going to be changes for both organizations. >> more broadly among house republicans, you wrote in their response to colin powell, you in 1996 did not think he was the right choice to be the nominee, but you said the republican party of 2013 bears little resemblance to the party of ronald reagan that would have responded to powell's concerns with an all hands on deck effort to win the war back. it's big enough to win back the white house in 2016. and that's, to the point, we have a more and more bifurcated congress, not the congress you served in. there were 49 votes, only 49 votes for sandy relief last night. that says a lot. there were more than 49 votes for gulf damage and repair after katrina. >> colin powell is a m

two living presidents george h.w. bush who was just released from the hospital and is who is now recovering, and george w. bush who sends his regrets. >> so as it happens because of the illness of the elder mr. bush, there will be only democratic presidents in attendance today. very, very unusual circumstance. the headline of the hour, the news broke moments ago by bob schieffer is that the republican leadership at this moment is in the white house having coffee with the president. perhaps a hopeful sign that agreements might come with the new year. >>> here's what's coming up the rest of this inauguration day. at 10:40, the president and mrs. obama leave the white house for the capital. the inaugural ceremonies begin at 11:30 and include the ceremonial swearing-in of vice president biden. then at 11:55, president obama will be sworn in by chief justice john roberts. and at noon, the president will deliver his inaugural address. that will be followed by lunch at the capital. then around 2:30, the president leads a procession back to the white house where he and the first lady wil
